The Miradry® Trifecta… Reduce Sweat, Odor, and Hair
Say goodbye to underarm sweat, odor, and hair. At Sacramento Hair Doctor, Dr. Nalini Prasad offers the advanced miraDry® system that not only reduces underarm sweating and stops perspiration odor but also removes underarm hair.
Are you bothered by and perhaps embarrassed about your excessive underarm sweating and odor? You are not alone! Excessive armpit sweating is a medical condition called hyperhidrosis. An estimated 37 million people in the United States suffer from excessive sweating of the underarms.
What is Axillary Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which natural perspiration is considered excessive and is divided into two categories, Primary Focal and Secondary Generalized. Dr. Prasad emphasizes to her patients that the difference is important as Primary Focal hyperhidrosis refers to excessive sweating that is not caused by another medical condition or due to side effects of some medications. Secondary Generalized Hyperhidrosis is caused by another medical condition or due to the side effect of a medication. Also, with Secondary Generalized Hyperhidrosis is that people with secondary hyperhidrosis often exhibit excessive sweating while sleeping. Dr. Prasad will conduct a medical examination to determine your specific condition.
What Are the Symptoms of Hyperhidrosis?
Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis is often a nuisance and very bothersome condition for many women and men of all ages. Symptoms include:
- Sweat that soaks through clothing
- Complaints about persistent odor
- Excessive sweat on both sides of the body
- Episodes of excessive sweating occurs at least one episode a week
- Episodes of excessive sweating started earlier than age 25
- Positive family history

Excessive sweating can disrupt your quality of life and limits your normal daily activities. People with hyperhidrosis also may experience anxiety or withdrawal and embarrassment. There is help! Schedule a consultation with Dr. Prasad to obtain a medical diagnosis and determine if miraDry® is right for you.
What is miraDry® and How Does it Work to Stop Excessive Sweating and Odor?
FDA-cleared • Safe -Effective- Rapid Results • As Little As One Treatment*
Imagine freedom from antiperspirant, deodorant, and a bonus benefit of no more shaving.* miraDry® is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment that reduces underarm sweat, odor, and hair!1,2
miraDry® uses thermal energy to create heat in the area where bothersome sweat, odor, and hair glands reside and safely eliminates them. Dr. Prasad advises patients that there is no need to worry about your armpit sweat glands. While your body does need sweat glands to cool itself, your body has 2-4 million sweat glands – only about two percent are found in your underarms.
Reducing this two percent of sweat glands does not affect your body’s ability to cool itself as you will continue to sweat in other areas of your body.
Dr. Prasad has personally undergone the treatment and advises that you will feel results in as little as one treatment. The results are clinically proven to be long-lasting with 100,000+ miraDry® treatments performed worldwide.*
